MWSC Managing Director Kanyembo Ndhlovu said, “I want to join you in congratulating all the gallant and hardworking members of the Mulonga family. Our achievement has not come by accident but by the commitment of each of us.”
“Now that the euphoria has died down, we should take stock of what we did well and do more of it and also look at what we did not do well and make it our mission to correct that.”
“Our regulator, using the said benchmark, has rated us the best. I want to share with you what the Minister’s speech contained that hit me hard. He said that no matter what, the customer’s perception is more important. That was sobering indeed. I therefore want to implore all of us to ensure that even as we enjoy this moment, we challenge ourselves to win the customers over. Let’s roll up our sleeves and get down to more hard work.” He said.
